year, honor the day of love, Valentineís Day, with luscious
We do this class early in the year so your herbals can be ready for Valentine's Day.
We'll make an aphrodisiac cordial, aphrodisiac infused chocolate, and a sensual massage oil.
We'll discuss what it is to be in the present moment through touch, and soul presence,
which is an aphrodisiac in itself! You'll go home with samples and recipes to make your valentineís day
or any day a heart centered, sensual experience! Please bring three jars sized 4-8 ounces each, with lids.
The Easy Herbal

blocks of a healthy herbal kitchen.
Doing these things increases nutrient density to your usual food routine!

herbal honey, herbal ghee, as well as bone marrow broth, and recipes for using them.
Students will sample these, and make and take home herbal honey and ghee, instructions and recipes.

Itís easy to make a
nourishing herbal lip balm at home!
Using only natural, organic ingredients, we will craft our own chapstick from start to finish,
and you take home the finished product and recipe. Along the way we will discuss
why making our own skincare is a healthier choice for women,
learn how to look at our lips for signs and indicators of health,
and go over ingredients and other recipes we can use for future crafting.
